Historical overview

The exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown, but according to the dates on the preserved tombstones it can be assumed that the cemetery emerged in the late 19th century. First it appears on Russian topographic maps in 1880s and, later, was also marked on Polish map of 1939. The fence was erected by ESJF in 2017.
